The White Tower (included in sale)

This is an exciting, fresh-to-the-market paperback book cover illustration by Al Schmidt for the 1952 Cardinal Complete Book Edition of The White Tower by James Ramsey Ullman. The text slug on the paperback reads, "Five men and one woman gazed upward at Weissturm - The White Tower - hypnotized by the beckoning shadows that played across the the mountain's icy peak. No one spoke. Each knew that he must conquer the mountain or die." A clean, complete copy of the published paperback is included in the sale!
